 Dear  Leland ,

Thank you very much for your letter. The coming of  Dr. Tom Croat the 
botanical garden of Nancy is for me an incentive to publicize the family 
Araceae to the public.
Best regards

Geneviève
Here is the site of the botanical garden

Dear Genevieve,

Aloha and bonjour.

I have not met Dr. Croat in person.  However, I grow many plants associated 
with his collections and his publications are treasured references in my 
library.

I have also never visited the great botanic gardens in Europe, but from what 
I have learned;there are wonderful collections of Araceae.  Congratulations 
on assembling such fully documented collections...it is so important for the 
future.

Most of my experience with Araceae in habitat was in Brazil.  At the time, 
good information was difficult to obtain.  I worked with Brazilian botanists 
to collect for various ex-situ collections in Brazil.  Among these were the 
Augusto Ruschi Museum in Santa Teresa, Rio Botanical Gardens, and Roberto 
Burle-Marx's collection which he donated to the Brazilian government.  We 
collected from areas actively being destroyed. I have a good understanding 
of in-situ preservation, but also the necessity of well-documented ex-situ 
collections.

I am glad that you had a successful conference with Dr. Croat.  Araceae 
deserve more attention on the global scene and Dr. Croat is certainly one of 
the best ambassadors for the Family.

Aloha,

Leland Miyano
